MADRID, SPAIN. JULY 24, 2018 – CEMEX Ventures announced today an investment in Concrete Sensors, a U.S.-based startup that enables contractors to accelerate their schedules through accurate real-time monitoring of temperature, relative humidity, and strength with any mix design of concrete.
Concrete Sensors, an Internet of Things company focused on construction, uses embedded wireless sensors, combined with a mobile app, to supply the data needed to make critical decisions with a high degree of accuracy. The combination of data and in-house concrete lab calibration enables their customers to save money and reduce schedules by weeks, all while improving quality.
This solution represents a major breakthrough in the construction industry, allowing teams to not only avoid schedule delays, but also optimize their workflow. Every concrete pour is unique, making management difficult and increasing a project’s risk. After concrete pouring, installed on-site sensors are automatically activated to immediately analyze the concrete, ensure quality, and create efficiency. Sensors continually collect data, reporting on performance and alerting contractors of issues before they happen.
Concrete Sensors’ solution has already been used by some of the largest and most sophisticated contractors such as Turner Construction Company and Skanska. This user-friendly solution has caught the interest of CEMEX Ventures, Requus Ventures, and Arab Angels Fund, which have partnered in this investment. All share a common vision with Concrete Sensors of focusing on the market potential of actionable insights, high accuracy, superior customer service, and a deep understanding of the construction industry.
